My #FirstCarMoment

Michelin's new campaign has us going down memory lane to the time we got our first car. Whether it was handed down to you by your parents, or you worked a few jobs to earn it, none of us will forget the feeling of owning our first car. I got my first Jeep as a Christmas present back when I was in college and home visiting my parents. It was Christmas morning...  Read More

Tires like the popular S.Drive and its predecessor, the AVS Intermediate, have a special place in the memories of many high performance drivers.   Yokohama offers much more than performance tires. Whether you're looking at touring tires for the family...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO

I bought these tires in December 2009 just before the Christmas Blizzard that swept across the Midwest (Iowa in particular, three days with 45 mph winds and 30 of snow) I had these tires in deep snow out on the country roads, climbing steep hills in town and never had a problem with traction or getting stuck, they just kept digging through the snow. They...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

I love these tires. I needed a good set of winter tires for getting back into my hunting spots and THESE ARE IT!!! I have never had a good winter tire that did not require 4wd at all times but these Yokohamas are it! I did a little off-road driving looking for a good hiking spot and these really helped get me there.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

Approx. 1,000 Miles so far on my 2009 Volvo S40-R AWD & I am very Satisfied so far with these tires! Driven during the following Conditions so far: Warm & Dry, Light/Hard Rain, Light 2-3 Snow & Ice (Thanks to Maryland Weather).This is my 18th vehicle that I have owned but only my 4th Car/Sedan, most of the others were lifted off-road 4x4's with 33+ Mud...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

Very impressed, I bought these tires so i did not have to change out from a summer tire to a winter one and the reputation of the previous generation of BFG AT's. I drive a combination of Canadian 2wd Highway commute, 6x12 dirt bike trailer pulling and 4wd trail driving with the trailer with a Nissan X Terra 6M Off Road. These tires have exceeded my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Rugged Terrain T/A

Love these tires - heavy towing, offroad, rugged gravel roads, spirited hwy and city driving, rain, snow, hot weather....these tires have been amazing performers with excellent road manners and fuel economy.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Long Trail T/A Tour

I may not be the best to rate this tire as I like to go off road, and when I purchased the vehicle it came with these tires standard. The tire lasted forever that is the best I can say about them. Living in the northwest tested these tires. I never did get a great, quiet feel to them even on the highway. I had issues in the heavy rain but it handled itself...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S

I have logged 1,400 miles on these, with about 100 miles on off-highway trails. I am running the factory recommended 20 PSI all around. The 100 miles of trail were my first experience of this sort.I went with the stock size because I felt that bigger tires compromised the already low power of the 1.3l Samurai engine. The smaller tires resulted in a 5%...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

Awesome tire!!! No snow in Southeast Alabama. Super ride on pavement. Lock in the 4WD and they are a beast off-road! Not cheap but definitely worth the money.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Long Trail T/A Tour

About to order another set to replace current set. Old set now has 60k miles. No issues with them other than we've worn them out. We do mostly highway driving in all kinds of conditions in an SUV loaded with people, biking and camping equipment. Also have done light off-roading as necessary to get to bike venue/camping spot. These have been great tires.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

Great tire so far. As of today I would definitely buy again. I have only had this tire through the winter and it has performed flawlessly. I do a fair amount of towing the snowmobile trailer to different locations during the winter and this tire has easily out-performed my last (stock ??, BFG A/T KO, and Toyo M/T) three sets of tires. The BFG's were terrible...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar M/T Plus

I have good and bad to say. Traction is good on-road and great off-road. My concern is the mere 2 ply sidewalls for serious off road work. My fear proved true this weekend when an innocent looking stick blew out the sidewall from wheel to tread. Not sure exactly how it even happened. It was on a easy trail and the stick was loose, but somehow got...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Rugged Trail T/A

This tire came stock on my Pro-4X model Xterra. This tire is an ok all around all-season SUV tire, but there are better ones out there. It looks fairly aggressive but performance is average. Was ok in snow, off-road, and on-road, disappointing in wet weather traction (lost grip quicker than I expected). Got 51,000 miles before getting down to the wear bars...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Ultra Grip Winter

I got these tires for my Fiat. I used them for most of one winter in northern Michigan. Travelled into backcountry every day (to my favorite back country skiing spots). I never got stuck, and they ride well on the highway too. I switched to a 14 wheel from a 15 OEM. That combined with these tires totally changed what i could do with the Fiat. When spring...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S

BEST TIRE EVER! Seriously, I've tried many different tires from BFG, Goodyear, Interco, and the like, and no ONE tire performs better at everything than this tire.Need to walk a curb? No problem. The enhanced silica sidewall simply does not scuff. These tires stick like glue when you are at full tilt on a cloverleaf on-ramp to the interstate, but wear...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM

This is an Off-Road tire. It's not an Aquatread or Hydro-Edge, therefore I dismiss those who say the wet traction is lousy. The tire was not made especially for wet pavement, but for off road conditions. No magic tire exists to fully cover all road/off-road conditions. These tires have served me well in sand, mud and dry rock off-roading. I have not driven...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor

In town or across the country, good weather or bad, when I have to go, I have to go. These tires not only performed well but saved my butt several times. I watched others spin out behind me on black ice, but I never slipped. Put it in 4WD and I'm only my way. Comfortable, quiet, good tread life and about 30% of my miles were around town. Replaced these with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

Amazing tires, they handle very well in light to heavy snow. It's surprising how well they do in snow. They've done well offroad as well, but I'm most surprised by how smooth they ride and how well mannered they are on the road. The lack of road noise is impressive (they are just as quiet as the previous Yokohama Geolandar highway tires). I wish they were a...  Read More
